Rock-solid Reliability. Global Relay develops, owns and operates its services on a fully-managed, outsourced model with East coast/West coast SOC audited data centers. Our systems are extremely reliable and cost-effective. All data archived with Global Relay has end-to-end security, encrypted with a dual encryption algorithm system using National Security Agency level AES and RSA encryption keys ensuring the highest level of data security available today. 

High Performance Systems. The technology that powers Global Relay Archive and the monitoring systems is second to none. Our systems have unmatched scalability and are able to index terabytes of data with no performance issues. Where most archiving systems are based solely on database technology, Global Relay's system is based on a hybrid database/search engine core. A typical online search is less than three seconds. This translates into unsurpassed productivity while conducting search, retrieval and monitoring activities regardless of company size.
